Fantasies in a Waking State

Fantasies in a Waking State

Jay Miriam’s paintings of everyday people, in everyday situations, explore the tension between faithful representation from memory and the transformative act of painting. In Miriam’s third solo exhibition at Ornis A. Gallery, “Fantasies in a Waking State”, Miriam presents a secret theater of long-known and sometimes willingly-ignored questions: What is consciousness? How is it possible? Is it a figment of the imagination, a way to define and rationalize our relationships, or a sense of self and selflessness? In this latest work, Miriam approaches our constant companion, the mind-body problem, and its pleasures, distresses, and desires, and finds the ordinary ego that associates purpose with the wonderful tapestry of evolution.
